Album: The Name EP
Release date: Aug 12,2016
Genre: Hip Hop/ Rap
I have been watching SonReal blow up like a mad man in the music scene and as always killing it with his tours. I had a chance to see him perform live on Classified’s stop in London, Ontario at the London Music Hall and he put on an incredible live show. His EP The Name sounds amazing in my car stereo, I’m the annoying guy with the bass and treble rolling through the city with the windows down, and I’m proud to admit it. I enjoyed all the tracks on this EP.
“Can I Get A Witness” was the first track and brings that energy that SonReal is so full of. He gets so into the song when performing it, which of course adds to the crowds excitement. When he was on stage in London, the ladies were going crazy with the screams. His mid 80’s/hip hop/punk rocker look just helps to exaggerate the music and vibe he reflects. He is one talented man and he brings his dreams to life.
Another track I really like is “SOHO”. It’s all about the Indie life and giving shout outs to how strong his team is. The production that went into this track is awesome. His flow is on point and doesn’t skip a beat. A great track to have in your playlist when you want to wake yourself up with some great music and let loose, just like SonReal does on this album!
Inspirational Interviewer and Promotional music lover for artists.
Born in Kingston, I grew up with the likes of Dan Akroyd and his blues influence and also The Tragically Hip, plus live shows downtown in the streets and country bands in the pubs.
I love music in all forms and genres. I can adapt my ear to enjoy and appreciate all instrumentals and vocals. I started writing about certain artists that I grew up listening to and then I reached out to artists for interviews. I have done over 20 interviews with artists and CEOs of industry companies from all over the world.
Now, with Canadian Beats I have an opportunity to improve my journalistic abilities and to get the word out there for artists, and best of all to go to shows and get that personal feeling. I get to represent Canadian music on a higher level. We need to open more doors and have more shows and venues, as well as get the world to come to us. That is my goal.
